Published 3:14 pm Tuesday, October 19, 2010

The Polk County 4-H will host its 45th annual 4-H Supper on Friday, October 22. The dinner will feature traditional barbeque chicken cooked over an open pit or slow cooked roast beef, along with a baked potato, slaw and a home made dessert.

Proceeds from the supper ticket sales go directly to the local 4-H program. Call 828-894-8218 for tickets.

In addition, the youth of Polk County are trying to help fight hunger. Statistics show that one in five children in North Carolina struggle with hunger, so the youth are trying to fill a Nissan pickup truck with foods to be donated to Thermal Belt Outreach.

The public may put food items in the truck during the week of October 18, as it will be parked in downtown Columbus. You may also bring your food items with you the night of the supper. The youth are hoping all of Polk Countys residents will help with this important issue.
